West Virginia Personal Injury Attorney
Over 30 Years of Experience
After a serious injury, it can be overwhelming to consider the legal issues involved in filing a claim or lawsuit. The cost of medical treatment, rehabilitation, and loss of income from work and other financial losses add to an already difficult and painful situation. Attempting to recover compensation from the liable party's insurance company can be a shock - these companies frequently offer lowball settlements that will not even cover the costs you will be forced to pay. In any personal injury claim, it is imperative that you have legal representation that has experience and a proven record.

With over 30 years of experience and success in resolving serious injury claims, the firm can pursue the compensation for damages that you deserve. Working closely with you, our West Virginia injury lawyers will investigate your personal injury so we can identify forms of compensation that should be included in your claim. You don't need to worry about filling out paperwork or struggling with unresponsive insurance companies over what you should receive as compensation for your injuries. In fact, it is established that those who do not have legal representation usually receive far, far less in compensation than those who have high quality counsel managing the process. This is particularly crucial in serious or permanent injury cases.
